Oil seems to be at the center of every major issue confronting us today, but what do we really know about this amazing substance? Get all the answers about Black Gold in this fascinating doc.
- A comprehensive journey through the life cycle of modern society’s most important fuel.
- The Oil Age we now take for granted began less 150 years ago and could be over in our lifetime.
- Worldwide consumption of oil exceeds 60 million barrels of oil a day!
Crude oil is extracted from the Earth at an unimaginable rate and our society’s thirst for it is seemingly unquenchable.
We use oil’s derivatives — fuel, plastics, fertilizers, food additives — every day in every way. But where did it come from? What exactly is it? How much is there? How has it changed us? THE HISTORY CHANNEL® thoroughly answers these and many other questions in this sweeping journey through the 160-million-year history of CRUDE.
Shooting on locations around the world, interviewing leading experts, and using CGI animations to visualize both science and history, CRUDE helps make sense of the oil-driven world we live in. CRUDE connects the dots between geology and economy; between the past, present and future. Learn about Earth's extraordinary Carbon Cycle, and the role of oil in current concerns regarding the environment.
